I got up this morning at 6:30 a.m. because my toddler was awake and crying. I went into her room and lifted her out of her crib, hugged her against my body and said “Shush now you should be sleeping.” “Sunshine! No sleeping! Sunshine!” she cheerily babbled. Ugh. Sure enough sunlight was leaking in the corners of her bedroom blinds. I thought dark thoughts to myself about how much I hate that the sun is rising earlier these days, and gave into the fact that she wasn’t going to go back to sleep. Hours later, when I finally had a chance to get on the computer I saw everyone posting reminders that tonight the clocks “spring ahead”.

So I should be happy about that whole less morning light thing, right? But my mind is flooded with thoughts of impending doom and sleep deprivation. Oh, daylight savings time how I hate thee! Am I the only one feeling miserable about this? Are you other mom’s out there in the same boat, or are your kids immune? How do you switch them over?
